7:02am
lane are blocked. so fares are getting through in the -- cars are getting through in the middle lanes. traffic is backing up from 19th avenue to john daly. northbound 280 before geneva avenue on the freeway. if you want to use an alternate, 101 is a better alternate or get on the freeway after -- or get on the freeway at geneva avenue and you will bypass the crash. we're looking at the traffic at the toll plaza. and that traffic looks good. 101 san jose traffic is fine. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. 7:02. today, the ntsb is expected to release more information about saturday's crash landing at sfo. investigators are still interviewing the plane's four pilots. alex savidge is live in millbrae where he just talked to the head of the ntsb. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. federal investigators have yet to question the pilot of asiana flight 214, the man who was at the controls on saturday but the ntsb says that interview will take place later on this
7:03am
morning. yesterday, two of the four crew members on board the plane were interviewed. really, the goal is to understand why the pilots in this case didn't react sooner as this boeing triple 7 came in much to slow for a safe landing. according to data they were going 40 miles an hour before the target speed. the first tame they realized -- time they realized they needed more speed was about seven seconds before the crash. the auto pilot was turned off about a minute and a half before the impact. but the head of the ntsb says that's not unusual given the calm conditions on saturday. the pilot at the controls is still working on his certification for the boeing 777. i asked the head of the ntsb how difficult it would be for this pilot to make the transition and learn the ins and outs of this particular type of aircraft. >> we know he's flown aircraft in the boeing family before and
7:04am
so he had flown 747, but what we will be looking at is that transition training for him to now get a type rating on the 777. you will have book training, simulator training but you have this all in the cockpit experience and he's with a training captain. >> reporter: the pilot at the controls has been identified as lee gang-guk. he only logged 43 hours in the 777. but has 9800 hours total of flying time. ntsb investigators are working with korean accident investigators on the interviews. the other two pilots will be interviewed later today. as we bring you back out here live, a team of investigators is continuing to document debris and wreckage. but this runway, it's possible could reopen sometime within the next week. the ntsb again expects to complete all of their interviews with the crew members and they will be
7:05am
holding an update on the investigation and possibly releasing some of what was said during the interviews with the pilots during a news conference that will happen this afternoon. we're live this morning near sfo, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. s. the grieving parents of the two teenaged girls who died arrived in sfo last night. katie utehs will have much more on the family members' alival coming up at 7:30, including the angry words they had for the ceo involved in the crash. more flight delays at sfo. right now there is a traffic management program for arrivals. some arriving flights are being delayed about 2 hours, 39 minutes. we're not sure if this is related to the shutdown of the runway because of the weather
7:06am
or both. we could also see flight cancellations today. at least 100 flights were canceled yesterday. more flights were diverted to other airports. yesterday, oakland international airport reports they received as many as 15. four planes were sent to san jose instead. that number is down from 21 on saturday. neither airports expect the extra arrivals to affect their normal operations today. new this morning, from japan, another boeing 777 jet bound for san francisco had to turn around and land in tokyo during the night because warning lights flashed in the cockpit. japan airlines says 236 passengers were on board as that jet returned to tokyo because of a hydraulic leak. the passengers boarded another plane. it did land safely at sfo this morning. that hydraulic system is being
7:07am
investigated. happening today, residents are set to return to the scene of a massive and deadly apartment fire in redwood city. nearly 100 residents will be escorted back into their homes to gather belongings. brian flores is live with more information on sunday's fatal flames. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, tori. well, the fire from the very beginning was simply intense. as we take a look at the hallmark house apartment complex on woodside road here in redwood city, you can see several units of this complex are destroyed. many of those residents about 100 of them will be returning about 8:30 this morning. but as we go to the video now of this huge fire. this happened just before 2:00 a.m. on sunday. this was a six-alarm fire. several crews had to be sent to douse it. many of the victims at the time of the fire had nowhere to go so they waited on their balconies to be rescued. it displaced 100 residents, 23 people and three firefighters were injured. we're learning that one man has
7:08am
died and his body was found inside the apartment as a result of the fire. we don't know his identity this morning but officials believe the fire most likely started where he was. there are reports that the fire completely destroyed the third floor while the first and second floors are completely losses. despite that, at 8:30 this morning, residents will be escorted back to their apartments to collect whatever belongings they can. many of the residents, 30 or 40 people have been staying at a national guard army provided by the red cross.

8:01am
nare raw tiff of what exactly was going on in the cockpit, how the crew was communicating as this boeing 777 came into sfo going much too slow for a safe landing. the triple 7 was going 40 miles an hour below its target speed for landing. the first time the crew realized they needed more speed was 7 seconds before the crash. at that point it was too late. this was a training flight for the pilot at the controls. he's still working on his certification for that type of aircraft. the pilot's system was turned off about a minute and a half before the impact. the aircraft has the auto throttle system. if that system is engaged, it would automatically maintain a safe air speed during landing. >> it's normal for them to turn the auto pilot off as they are coming into land. >> and the auto thrust system would that be problematic if that was turned off?
8:02am
>> right now we have to determine if it was on or off? >> it could work safely both ways. ntsb investigators are working with their counterparts from korea. an stent investigation seem is -- an accident investigation team in the area. again, the crew members expect to do that today. translators are involved in the interviews. the pilot of the controls has been identified as lee jeong- min. he only fogged about 43 hours at the controls of a boeing 777 when the crash happened on saturday. investigators want to figure out exactly how familiar he and the other crew members are with the systems on board that particular aircraft. this morning, a team of investigators with the ntsb will continue to document the wreckage here at sfo. one key thing they've learned, it appears all of the engines on board that boeing 777 were
8:03am
working properly at the same tist crash. the ntsb will wrap up the interviews later today and then update their investigation. they will hold a briefing later on this afternoon. live this morning near sfo, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> as you heard alex say, the ntsb is focusing on the pilot's lack of experience with the boeing 777s and if that played a role in the crash. investigators say flight 214 was flying significantly below the target speed just before the plane slammed into the runway. some arriving flights are being delayed, that would delay the departures of the planes for the next flight. the delays are related to both the shut june of a runway and this morning's dense fog.
8:04am
we could also see more flight cancellations today. at least 100 flights were canceled yesterday. also yesterday additional flights were diverted to other airports, oakland international reports received as many as 15 flights for sfo. mineta san jose reports four planes bound for sfo were sent to san jose. that number is down from 21. new from japan, another boeing 777 bound for san francisco had to turn around and land in tokyo during the night because warning lights flashed in the cockpit. 236 passengers were on board as the jet returned to the airport because of a hydraulic leak. passengers boarded another plane that landed safely at sfo this morning early. the hydraulic system is being investigated. 8:04. in less than half an hour,
